Dr. Cuesta Says:
"

Personally, I pride myself on the time spent with a patient and the detail in my explanations. I cannot understand their disgruntled comments but feel that, with so many below average marks, that this is more personal than an objective review of my practice. I hope this person finds the care that they desire and the physician that is right for them.

Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Cuesta is very nice and we've been going for years but the office staff is very incompetent and rude when made accountable. We will miss Dr. Cuesta but will have to find another office after years. ??

Dr. Cuesta diagnosed the problem that has caused me pain over many years & three prior podiatrists. He was thorough & clearly explained everything, even things I never thought to ask. Excellent care.
